Paul’s Moving on After 31 Years!January 30, 2015
In that time, he’s manned the sales counter and the plumbing counter, done Goods In and Stock Control, and been a delivery driver. “I enjoyed driving the most,” he says, “getting out and about in the countryside, maneouvering in tight spaces – even blocking roads completely while I tipped a load of aggregate.”
He’s seen plenty of changes. “When I started, we just had flatbed trucks and a tipper. There was plenty of handballing, which was good exercise but hard work. Then trucks with cranes arrived and life got a bit easier! Also, 30 years ago we weren’t computerised. Sales were written out in triplicate books. I wouldn’t go back to that – it was so slow!”
Paul moves on to be caretaker, janitor and general dogsbody at Christian charity, Northampton Jesus Centre. “Lots of practical stuff, which I enjoy,” he says. Thank you for all you’ve brought to TBS, Paul, and we wish you well in the future.
